Kefalonia, all I dreamt of and more.

Kefalonia, all I dreamt of and more.

You’ll know by now that joining an NCT class has been my saving grace. And the friends I’ve met will be friends for life.

Earlier this summer four of us families, that’s couples and babies, bombarded the tranquil paradise of the White Rocks Hotel in Kefalonia for our first beach holiday.

Kefalonia has been on my wish list since I was 18 and studied Captain Corelli’s Mandolin at A Level. Finally I get to go, but I’d never have imagined it’d be with a mass group including four babies.

With four families, we had it all covered in all the wrong ways; the teething baby, the baby with a bug pooing diarrhoea with each crawl, the baby with a 40 degree temperature in 40 degree heat and the baby who was so thrown by the unfamiliar surroundings that he got day and night mixed up. Should I add they’re a year old?

Yes, it’s not easy travelling with bubbas but we still had the time of our lives. In true social media fashion I’ll breeze over the eventful bits and show you the highlights. Ha! Here’s some of my favourite shots from our first real family holiday on the isle of Kefalonia. It’s stunning, you must go!

We hired a var and toured the island for the day. First stop; the harbour at Sami

A traditional old fisherman boat – nothing fancy and totally does the job

The most stunning beach I have ever seen. No filter or touch ups – Myrtos Beach is so dazzling your eyes hurt!

The turtles frequent Argostoli Harbour daily for their breakfast; any fish caught in the line or not good enough to sell go to these beautiful creatures
